Lourdes Convent

Historical pageant 1953

By Richard White

This historical pageant concerned the Battle of Hastings. At the time we were taught that King Harold was killed by an arrow in his eye; current research of course questions this version of events.

My photograph shows Richard Whiting as King Harold and myself as the archer who shot the arrow through Harold's eye.

I am sorry but I cannot remember the names of the young ladies in the group. Perhaps you recognise yourself or someone else?

If you can help, please post a comment below.

I recognise the girls but can't remember their names. I was in a pageant there, I was Paddy Doyle then.
